The work and legacy of Corning Enterprises
In 1983, Corning CEO Amory Houghton Jr. recognized being a global leader in glass manufacturing was directly tied to developing and sustaining the local communities in which the company operated.
Thus, the birth of Corning Enterprises, a subsidiary formed to collaborate with local private and public-sector leaders to drive economic development, strengthen human services, and improve the quality of life in the greater Corning area.
“A vibrant community with a strong economic base, robust infrastructure, access to high-quality education, and support services is quite simply good for business and the community for which we are a part of,” said G. Thomas Tranter Jr., president, Corning Enterprises.
Some 35 years later, the results of Corning Enterprises’ involvement and leadership can been seen throughout the Greater Corning area.
